"Feeding the Need" Inquiry Unit—Year 8
The human body needs the right nutritional balance for optimum health and wellness. Essential vitamins feed our bodies and keep them running at peak efficiency. When the body is healthy, the mind is healthy, and everything works as it should. But sometimes our systems become unbalanced due to illnesses. When this happens, we must turn to the healing power of food to restore the balance within us.
Your team is starting a small business in freelance nutritional counselling. You have decided to make your expertise available to a wide range of people. To do that you will need to develop a publication that features an interesting visual reference for food sources containing vitamins required by the human body. Recommendations must include food sources that can help those suffering from frequent illnesses. It's essential to know how these foods are used and metabolized by the body to combat symptoms. This information must also be included in your project.
You can do this as either a traditional poster with illustrations or as a web page. The information provided in your team's publication must include descriptions of the different vitamins that are required by the human body. Explain why they are necessary, how the body uses them, and the foods in which they are abundant. You will need to provide examples of different illnesses and conditions associated with each one, and how the foods you are promoting help to combat these illnesses.
